They say silence is golden, which is true for The Riddler who is looking to find a big payday from silent movies. He has a scheme afoot which involves filming Batman and Robin in action for a silent movie he is making. But why? All will be revealed.

When something needs to be revealed, there is one man we call in to help take care of business. Joining us in the BATMANLAND cave is Benjamin Law, creator of SBS comedy The Family Law. He joins Dan and Nick as they explore the Dogme 95-esque film aspirations of the 1966 Batman TV show.
